Obed River Cleanup from Water

March 25, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Kayakers are encouraged to join TCWP, in cooperation with the National Park Service, for a whitewater cleanup trip on the Obed River on Saturday, March 25. The Park Service will staff a raft to be used for garbage collection.

Weather and river conditions are unpredictable, and decisions about the nature of the trip will likely be made the evening before the event. If water levels do not permit collecting trash from the river, there will be mini-cleanups at various put-ins. Participants should wear wicking fabric, not cotton clothes, and will need to bring lunch and water.

Participants will meet at 9 a.m. Eastern at the Obed Wild and Scenic River Visitors Center in Wartburg. For more information, contact Sandra Goss at 865-583-3967 or Sandra@sandrakgoss.com, or Mark Bevelhimer at 865-679-9242 or mbevelhimer@gmail.com.
